2017 Idaho Law Review Annual Symposium

Livestock Grazing on Public Lands:  Law, Policy & Rebellion

March 31, 2017

8:00 a.m. – 5:45 p.m.

Online Registration

Livestock grazing on western public lands is a complicated, and often hotly contested subject that deeply influences the economies of rural western places.  The Bureau of Land Management currently administers 8,000 permits and leases for livestock grazing, mostly cattle and sheep, on 21,000 allotments that cover nearly two-thirds of the country’s federal public lands.  How grazing is managed on such federal public lands, as well as state-owned and tribal lands, plays a singular role in the future of the rural West.  Conflicts over grazing have also proven an on-going source of anti-government sentiment, from the Seventies’ Sagebrush Rebellions to recent occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the transfer of public lands movement.

The Idaho Law Review invites you to participate in its 2017 symposium, Livestock Grazing on Public Lands:  Law, Policy & Rebellion, to be held in Boise, Idaho on March 31, 2017.

Solicitors Include:

-          UNLV Professor Bret Birdsong previously appointed to the Department of the Interior during the Obama Administration.

-          Bill Myers previously appointed to the Department of the Interior during the Bush Administration.
